Feeling the Love for Houseplants

January 20th, 2020

There’s still a bit of a chill in the air, and while you may be itching to get out to your garden, let’s use the colder months to appreciate houseplants! We’re very excited about our current houseplant selection (20% off until January 31, 2020!) which includes favorites such as bromeliad, string of pearls, dracaena, and so much more. If their beauty isn’t enough to convince you, we have a few fun facts about the other benefits houseplants bring to our lives.

Air Cleanliness

Because plants absorb carbon dioxide in the air and use it to create oxygen, they are great air purifiers! At the same time, they are able to eliminate harmful toxins. If you’re looking for a way to improve the air quality in your home, a houseplant could be just the natural solution you’re looking for. Ask one of our experts to help you pick out a plant to help purify the air in your home or office.

Increase Productivity

Several studies have shown that having plants/nature in the room can help to improve productivity, memory retention, and increase levels of concentration. Bringing in a small plant to the office or your workspace may be just the boost you need in 2020 to meet your goals!

Mood Boosters

Plants are known to help improve mental health. They are calm and patient, and just looking at them can help a person to feel more at peace. If you struggle with stress (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), adding plants to your home may help bring your stress levels down!

A Sense of Ownership

Maybe you’re not quite ready to commit to a pet, but you are ready to care for a plant! During a horticultural study, researchers discovered that when people have a plant to care for, they feel a sense of companionship and accomplishment.
